NAVIGON Brings its GPS Navigation for the iPhone to Australia

First iPhone solution from a major navigation company now available in the App Store
  • 04 August, 2009 06:57

<p>Hamburg/Germany, AUGUST 4, 2009 — NAVIGON AG, Europe’s fastest growing GPS brand, today announced the availability of an Australian version of its on-board navigation software for the iPhone in the App Store. The MobileNavigator transforms any iPhone 3G, equipped with the new Apple OS 3.0 operating system, and any iPhone 3G S into a complete navigation device.</p>
<p>Following its successful launch in Europe last month and in North America two weeks ago, German GPS maker NAVIGON is the first major navigation company to launch a navigation solution for the iPhone in Australia. In more than ten European countries*, the app was ranked within the top three of all paid applications in the Apple Store within the first week. The software includes many of NAVIGON’s hallmark navigation functions such as Reality View Pro, Lane Assistant Pro, Speed Assistant and Day &amp; Night Mode. It also features NAVIGON’s sophisticated and elegant map views including branded POIs along the route.</p>
<p>“By making the MobileNavigator for the iPhone available for users in Australia, we are further expanding our global presence in the field of navigation for mobile phones,” said Gerhard Mayr, Vice President World-Wide Mobile Phones &amp; New Markets. “The combination of NAVIGON’s signature navigation features with typical functions from the iPhone creates an integrated and unique experience.” The map display, for example, switches automatically from¬ portrait to landscape view as soon as the iPhone is turned 90 degrees. There is also the option of navigating directly to an address from saved contacts. Furthermore, the multi touch function of the iPhone is integrated into this app and allows users to easily zoom in and out the map view with two fingers. NAVIGON will even add more features with software updates later this year.</p>
<p>After downloading the application, the software and map data from NAVTEQ® is saved directly on the device. This means that users don’t have to pay subscription fees or to download maps during the navigation. The NAVIGON solution for Australia sells for AU$99.99. It will be available for a promotional price of AU$69.99 until August 15.</p>
<p>The iPhone application launch follows NAVIGON’s recent launch of a new portable navigation device (PND) range in Australia – now available in all Harvey Norman stores.</p>

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
